I have a theory.... might be dumb but maybe this is how all the women in the game dropped in scale... in the last patch the "Pictish Women" 'were given access to speed bonuses'? Don't "short" characters get speed boosts? (And I think, inversely, tall characters get Strength bonuses?). Maybe giving 'women' in the game a universal speed bonus also shrank them?
That might not be the case, just throwing that out there. If anyone cares at all. lol I figure anyone spending money on the game or who has should probably have a game that looks decent and not goofy. Takes you out of it seeing dwarven women everywhere.
